    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to Goldman through my school's career website. I spoke with a few people over the phone and email - was granted a 2:1 video interview. After this round, me and one other kid were invited to "non-target" superday. Even though my school is ranked in the top 25 based on US News & World report, we weren't considered a target which I was surprised about. The superday went really well and I honestly thought I crushed it...but my friend and I both found out the next day that we didn't get offers.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    On campus recruiting for first round interview. Process was really run of the mill for S&T - they wanted to see that you understood the markets and had a genuine passion for them. Also, make sure to highlight anything technical/quantitative on your resume. Know your resume. Got invited for superday and then did not receive offer. Many qualified candidates and interviewers were really nice. Depends on who you get for difficulty of questions. Overall great experience but did not land offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral and markets based. Follow markets and do mock interviews and you should be good.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    My interview was with 2 employers of Goldman Sachs, both women. They were both pretty straight-out-of-college and hadn't been in the industry very long. From the beginning they weren't very polite, and did anything possible to put you on the spot. Going into the interview I felt pretty confident that I was well-prepared, however, after leaving my confidence had been shot down, completely.

    Corporate Credit Sales Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in September 2009.

    Interview

    My resume made it into a resume book which thankfully made it to a salesperson that covered a hedge fund I interned with. Came into Old Slip office for a superday with 4 different desks and was asked back to 1 NY Plaza to interview with 2 of the desks. Finally, I was asked back for a 3rd time with Corporate Credit Sales. Everyone I interviewed with was extremely personable and seemed interested in who they were bringing in at the junior level. There were no mental math or brainteasers, but they very much hammered the "Why Goldman" question. Obviously be up on the markets and have a view with a reason. In the end I think that my "Why Goldman" wasn't as strong as it should have been and I subsequently did not receive an offer.
